The Place We Call Home
Its rolling hills, stretching from the emerald Soča River to Friuli in Italy, are dotted with houses and farms. The pleasant Mediterranean climate has created a perfect sanctuary for top-quality wines, luscious fruit and delectable olive oil. The tumultuous past, marked with fighting and friendships among the peoples of Central Europe, has profoundly co-shaped the equally lively and leisurely pace of life in Brda villages, where everything happens within the family circle and in harmony with visitors.
Rebula is the most iconic variety of the Brda region, which can be traced back to Roman times. As a variety of a thousand faces, it holds a prominent place in all the brand lines of the Klet Brda winery.
The primary grape variety is Rebula (27%), followed by Merlot (20%), Chardonnay (16%), and Sauvignonasse or Sauvignon vert (12%). Other varieties grown in our vineyards include Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon blanc, Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Pinot bianco, Picolit, Verduzzo, Pinot noir, and Syrah.
Our vineyards are planted on steep slopes and thus require a lot of manual labour. All the work is done by family members and friends, which enhances quality control. Throughout the world, this kind of production is known as heroic viticulture.
The climate in the Brda region combines the freshness of the Alps and the Mediterranean influences, producing wines with a broad spectrum of aromas. The hallmark of Brda wines is their minerality, which is due to a particular marl soil called opoka.
